the beautiful sacred bell garden of Mission San Juan Capistrano California.
La Mission de San Juan Capistrano de Sajavit.
Mission San Juan Capistrano California Founded on 01 November 1776, 231 years before I was there standing here in this beautiful garden and the Four-Bell Campanario which was built in 1813. The Moor fountain was designed and built by Father O'Sullivan during his tenure at San Juan Capistrano. The Bells of Mission San Juan Capistrano were a beautiful part of daily life in the Mission.
These are the replacement bells which were placed after the great earthquake of 1812, they each are named and have inscriptions, the original bells are on display within the footprint of the destroyed Mission campanile "bell tower"
